Hi all,

Just an Idea who would be interested in a soft skin campaign?

Any military soft skin vehicle from any era and of any nationality.

Sound good?

Thanks,
Philip

I have a few kits in the stash that would fit the bill. When do you plan on starting?

Cheers!

Hi Philip,

Sounds good, but I am already signed up for the Sherman Campaign, so a late year start date, or a long campaign would suit me better. If you run it for a year I'll join in.

Looks like there is some interest then.

How about from October 2010 running for one year? THis would give people time to schedule it in or finish multiple builds!

Thanks,
Philip.

Hi Phil,

That sounds good to me. It might be worth waiting a little longer until we see what IGB are cominng out with as they hvae indicated that they will be releasing some British softskins in the later part of the year, but how certain that is I don't know.

October though is good for me.

Sounds good to me. I like the soft skinned vehicles give an opportunity to do something different. Count me in.

Hi Alan,

I will be glad to see some British soft skins. However With no confirmed release date I think it would be best to go ahead with the campaign.

We're up to 5 now, half way to it happening!

Thanks,
Philip.

I'd sign up too, but note that a very similar "non-fighting vehicles" campaign proposal is also doing the rounds to cover much the same theme in much the same time frame...

(If they both go ahead I'll enter both!)

Hi Tom,

Yes I have noticed the NFV campaign. As highlighted in that thread that would cover vehicles like half tracks and APC's whereas this campaign would cover only the soft skins!

With Eion we now have 7 only 3 more required!

Thanks,
Philip.

There has to be more people with soft skinned vehicles in the stash waiting for a campaign like this!
Anyone?

Thanks,
Philip.

I was going to go in the Red Ball Express Campaign, but it looks like it died out. I'll give this one a chance, I have a few different softskin vehicles hanging out.

Options for this one are:

Got a couple of CMP conversions to do 158" and 134" but will wait out on those to see what IGB come up with.
